According to a recent report by The New York Post, upon release from the Pennsylvania- based institution, the former real estate developer will be handed over to federal officials will then set up a deportation back to his home country of Italy.
When asked for comment on the legal matter, Follieri's rep told the publication, "After my visit with Raffaello last week in Loretto federal prison, where he has been for the past 48 months focused solely on his education, charitable endeavors and physical transformation, it is my understanding from counsel, that he is indeed to be transferred into the custody of ICE for immediate processing and subsequent deportation back to Italy where he is expected to be released into the care of his family. [He] expects to resume his role at the helm of the Follieri Group."

Just months before, Anne called it quits after four years of dating and later explained the rough time she endured to to Britain's The Independent, saying, "The worst thing that happens to you can be the best thing for you, if you don't let it get the best of you."
